Hello. Ooh, VDO.
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Es-cott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/2/15 3:03pm Scott Williams:

It's Greg! and it's Bronwyn! and it's Chris! and it's Em-att! Welcome, pals; settle in, watch for wires
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Chris, you've heard of VDO? Is this typical of their music?

"Zyzzybaloubah", wasn't that an alien world and "secret word" on Pee Wee's Playhouse??
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm cleaning out my place, so I need to watch for wires in my house, as well as on your show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 3:05pm steve:

wires, wires everywhere
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/2/15 3:05pm Scott Williams:

Zyzzybaloubah was the scary-then-cute alien on Pee Wees, indeed. VDO is outta TX - it's Matt Castille from the Mutant Sounds blog, plus other studio/collector-type luminaries
Avatar    Mon. 11/2/15 3:06pm Chris from DC:

I would say most of it is along these lines, yeah?
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Scott, I like these "mutant" sounds. Concur w/ Chris from DC.

And wow! I guessed that since that was the only such "zyzzy- " reference in my mental data bank :)
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:08pm Mdurek:

Bwa ha ha ha perfect post halloween vibe :D
  Mon. 11/2/15 3:08pm P-90:

Hi @Matt! Actually, I seem to recall that "Zyzzybalouba" was the name of a strip-tease dancer in an unpublished Dr. Seuss children's book.
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi P-90!
Though Dr. Seuss strip-tease dancers would be cute and acceptable for kids--round, furry dresses taken off to reveal a round ring of fur where the bra would be, on a funny bird-like female animal!
  Mon. 11/2/15 3:11pm P-90:

OK, it was from PW's Playhouse...
Avatar    Mon. 11/2/15 3:12pm V Priceless:

hey Scott - this is crazy cool!

Hey Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 3:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"Watch for wires" - that's good advice for snowmobilers, too.
Avatar Mon. 11/2/15 3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@P-90: But don't let that stop us from creating our own reality!

Hey Matt! Indeed, since mid-July. I quite like it here.

I need to hear this Glenn Mercer record based on this and the Eno cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/2/15 3:24pm northguineahills:

Thanks for keeping the Glenn Mercer thread going, Scott--fourth show in a row to play Glenn. Happy birthday, Mr. Feelie!

Oh, that reminds me, I saw a Dad with his kids trick or treating in a Mets hat t-shirt jacket AND sneakers. Sorry for your loss, dude.

Quite a few kids (esp. the little ones) forget to say Trick or Treat!! but pretty much all of them did say thank you, so civilization is not completely doomed.
